NFL  > Cleveland Browns  > That's it for Delhomme

Word is Jake re-injured his ankle in Sunday's loss. He has a high/low sprain which means he'll be out for a significant amount of time according to reports.

I've backed Jake, I've tried to cheer him on but now it's time for the Browns and Mike Holmgren to get real. He's 35 and the chances of him coming back in playing shape from an injury is pretty slim. Time to put him on IR and look for a veteran back up to Seneca Wallace

(And no this in no way means Colt McCoy is wasted pick.)

Wallace has played well enough to win and should be the starter provided his injury isn't serious. If it is, I recommend the coaching staff watch some Michigan Wolverine game footage and start Josh Cribbs at QB against the Steelers.

Why not?

Or see if Brian Sipe could do a spot start... I mean if Farve can do it.....

Good post HGT. I just wanted to say that I don't think that Colt is a wasted pick. That last thread was about him being wasted if they are not willing to use him when they need him. Two injured QBs on the roster, and one healthy on the bench. Now Jake's ankle situation is worse than it was. For the health of their players, the Cleveland coaches failed on Sunday.

Point taken. And I agree. At the very least send in Colt just to hand off.

Or better yet, send in Josh Cribbs and stay in the wildcat for an entire drive. Plenty of thing the coaches could have done but didn't do.

Well, now they have a week to work on it. Jake's out. Seneca is probably not going to practice much this week. What do you work on? I say the wild cat, but Colt might need to take some snaps if Seneca cannot go on Sunday. Tough decisions ahead for Mangini and company.

All the focus is on Colt McCoy this coming game. What the Browns really need however is a good effort from their defense. Big Ben might or might not be in synch with his receivers early on and if Cleveland can get the same kind of pass rush as they did in the last game that could at least keep the Steelers off the scoreboard.

The difference last year the Steelers were without Mendenhal. The Browns just let Michael Turner rack up 140 though 90 of those yards came on 4 plays, one long 40 yard run that didn't result in any points and 3 more long runs towards the end when the defense was gassed. For a large part of the game they kept the Falcons offense bottled up nicely.
